Handmade pastries from the heart of Philadelphia

Located in Frankford, Philadelphia, A Cupcake Wonderland is co-owned by Lily Fischer and Nima Etemadi, best friends from Sarah Lawrence College who quit other careers to become pastry chefs. Pick up your order to visit their immaculate, new, commercial kitchen in the Globe Dye Works building, or have your order delivered within the greater Philadelphia area!


Native Philadelphian Lily Fischer worked as a preschool teacher before graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia’s Baking and Pastry Program and founding ACW in 2009. In her spare time, Lily tames her South Kensington jungle-garden and makes her husband fat.

Philadelphia-transplant Nima Etemadi, formerly assistant editor of Aperture magazine, is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute’s Classic Pastry Arts program and the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts. In his spare time, Nima lounges on bear-skin rugs and makes himself fat.
